Abstract

IgG4-related disease is an immune-related condition that can affect multiple organ systems. Since it was first described in 2003, this heterogeneous disease had gained much attention, but the general acknowledgement of this disease remained relatively low, so misdiagnoses are common during clinical practice. Here we report a case of a 41-year-old female patient with recurrent lymphadenopathy, rash on her limbs and aggravating dyspnea, who suffered from these symptoms for 5 years before she was finally diagnosed with IgG4-related interstitial lung disease and lymphadenopathy.
